Hey friends, and Happy Tuesday! Get ready, because we’re about to share a wedding with you all that is incredibly close to our hearts!! This sweet bride you see in these images is our business’ precious Lifestyle Photographer, Tori… and she got married on Saturday!!! We have been anxiously awaiting this sweet day since last year, and it was every bit as perfect as we’d expected it to be… just wait until you see the sweet images from this day, my goodness gracious!!! What a joy and honor it was to get to be the people who got to capture her entire wedding day and be a part of her and her husband Spencer’s wedding experience!! We are just huge fans of Tori and her heart, so it was an honor to get to celebrate these guys on Saturday!

These two were married in the most beautiful church that means a lot to Tori’s family, we swung by Donovan Park for some beautiful portrait time (that LIGHT, guys… just wait until you see!!!), and they danced the night away with their family and friends at Peoria’s Par-A-Dice Hotel ballroom reception! It was truly SUCH a perfect day- and it was so obvious how much heart & care Tori and Spencer had put into every single meaningful detail! Every single guest in attendance felt loved and acknowledged, and we respect that so much. Not only that, but we had FIVE Caitlin & Luke couples in or at the wedding, which was so special! It just doesn’t get much better than that, friends!! 🙂

Tori and Spencer, we could not be more excited for you two and we cannot believe your wedding day has already arrived!! It feels like just yesterday that Tori texted us a photo of her ring and the sweetest video of your proposal (and Caitlin totally cried 😉)! It’s been our honor to be your photographers and we are so thrilled to share our very favorite images from your beautiful wedding day right here on the blog! Enjoy that honeymoon, you two… we love you both!

So much love! Xoxo,
Caitlin & Luke

We want to extend a huge thank you to the amazing vendor team that made this beautiful wedding day possible!
